Bit of a game changer
When I first saw this knife I didn't expect it to become my favorite, and i own a tachyon 3, bas-r, cove, triton, etc. I've got some good knives and benchmade just took the spotlight on them all for a while. NOT saying its the best knife ever, but I havent flipped anything but the 87 for the past month, I barely touch my hom basilisk anymore. Not what some would call a top tier flipper but for my taste it's perfection.P.S. I have to be honest and give my 0.02 on the sheath. Definitely not the best. But, I'm not sure if I got a "good" one or not, but i used 1 of 2 velcros on the first loop, made sure to line it up right, and for the past 2 months it's held up with 0 problems, no threads going yet and still holds the knife as snug as day one. Velcro hasnt even budged a hair, and the thin material on the back is surprisingly durable, hasnt torn at all or even stretched too much. Considering I now have a custom leather sheath made for my 87, probably wont go out and buy a replacement, but if I didnt have a custom leather sheath, i'd prolly buy one to replace the current when the time comesAlso nicknamed "STITCH" first knife i've ever needed stitches for for simply grabbing the wrong handle on a basic open ^o^ (first day)

Butterfly straight razor
Pros: extremely high quality, razor sharp OTB, love the magnetic latch, single billet titanium handles feel amazing, centering is perfect, pivots are silky smooth Cons: sheath is almost unusable - the Velcro loops are too big for the cutouts they’re supposed to fit through
